    Reasonable price for psychiatrist

    Hi. I need to see a psychiatrist but I've read that it can be really pricey.
    Any suggestions for good but affordable doctor?

    Thank you!

    The problem in HK is there is a serious shortage of psychiatrists, and the ones in private practice take full advantage.

    I am not sure that there is a good, and affordable, one in hk. Very happy to be proved wrong.

    He has advertised on this site, and has been recommended-DR NG WAI MAN STEPHEN
    Suite 510, Prince's Building
    10 Chater Road, Central Hong, Kong
    Tel:28680111

    but I doubt you will get away with less than $1,500 or so for first appointment.

    You must be crazy to pay that kind of money.

    A friend used to to go to her assigned psychiatrist at the public hospital for $160, but it took ages for her to get her appointment.

    Would be curious to hear about cost too. The only psychiatrist I once called up for charges quoted HK$3000 without medication, which is insane.

    Since much of this might be talking, try phoning one from overseas?

    Then Fanda for ant prescription? Or post?
